GOTA, a typical Old Delhi specialty, is a mouth freshener made from my family's heirloom recipe.
It is meant to be eaten post a meal to aid the digestive process.
- It consists of Melon seeds,Saunf, Dhania Seeds and many such age old ingredients that help the gut digest food better, Also the saliva created while masticating sends additional digestive juices to the gut.
- Saunf, Lacha Supari, Khajoor Supari & Peppermint make it a fantastic mouth freshener with additional health benefits.
- The Roasted Coconut slivers lower the Glycemic load of the meal thus keeping one full for longer. And effectively in the long term aid weight loss.
Amma's digestive hack : Amma used to keep many such jars of yummies on her bedside table which are age old digestive hacks, meant to be eaten after a meal. Albeit in moderation, she used to say "its a mouth freshener, just a little bit is enough, not to be eaten like Daal-chawal "😁.
